Description: oil on canvas

Condition Report: Condition: This work is in good condition. Some signs of abrasion to the lower left section of the painting, close to the edge. Some signs of colour fading around the tree trunks, most probably inherent to the artist's creative process. UV: Upon inspection with the UV light, some sign of restoration to the upper right corner of the painting. Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are accurate, with the overall tonality being lighter in the original work.
